Wearable Scanner Ring Wins 2020 Taiwan Excellence Award

Advantech has announced that its LEO-W wearable barcode scanner ring was honored with a 2020 Taiwan Excellence award. This prestigious award is considered one of the highest honors in Taiwan’s industry. Advantech’s LEO-W wearable barcode scanner ring was selected by the jury for ‘impressively demonstrating superior innovation’.

The LEO-W wearable barcode scanner ring is an ultra-compact Bluetooth barcode scanner that is worn on a finger for hands-free scanning. Designed to streamline workflows for warehouse, logistics, retail, and inventory management applications, LEO-W is capable of scanning barcodes printed on paper labels or displayed digitally.

Unlike traditional barcode scanners with a capacitive touch pad, LEO-W features an optimized physical scan button for superior control and power savings. The LEO-W barcode scanner is available with five ring strap sizes and can be worn on either the left or right hand for maximum flexibility and comfort. Moreover, LEO-W features a magnetic connector for easy battery recharging, thereby eliminating issues related to cable bending.

To ensure reliable operation in harsh industrial environments, LEO-W features a wide operating temperature range (-20 ~ 50 °C/-4 ~ 122 °F), IP54 rating for protection from water and dust, and can withstand drops of up to one meter. The compact, lightweight (33g) design allows LEO-W to be deployed for a wide range of applications.

For long-duration use typical of shift work, the built-in battery supports up to eight hours operation and can be recharged within 1.5 hours. Overall, LEO-W provides a great-value mobile data collection solution with the durability to withstand rough handling in industrial environments.

Equipped with Bluetooth communication technology, the LEO-W barcode scanner ring can be easily paired with a wide range of devices for real-time data collection. Moreover, the scanner can operate at distances of up to ten meters from the host system, increasing worker mobility and overall efficiency.

By reducing workflow interruptions and data-entry errors, the LEO-W barcode scanner ring allows managers to streamline operations and increase productivity.
